There’s a chill in the air and it is officially winter. In this episode of the WeCrochet Podcast we’re talking all about cuddling up and crocheting the winter days away. First, Heather and Sara check in and find out how each other’s holiday went and what projects they worked on during their time off.
Next, Heather & Regan chat about our Wintertide Collection, which has all the crochet patterns you need to make it until spring. Regan gives some behind-the-scenes info about the photo shoot for this collection, and they talk about their favorite of these patterns. Heather also teaches us about “hygge” which was one of the inspirations for this collection.
Last, we’re debuting our new segment, Ask Katelyn! Katelyn answers important crochet questions from our crochet community. Find out important info about yarn swifts, whether or not to use the magic ring, how to find the starting point on a ball of yarn, and more. She also defines what “yarn barf” is for us who didn’t already know there was a word for that.
